Wike blasts Amaechi for stopping Trans-Kalabari link road

The River State Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate, Nyesom Wike, has blasted the incumbent governor of the state, Rotimi Amaechi, for cancelling the Trans-Kalabari link road.

Mr. Wike told his supporters during his campaign rally in Buguma, Asari-Toru Local Government that the termination of the project had negatively affected the economy of the people of Kalabari.

“The Trans-Kalabari link road started by former Governor Peter Odili was cancelled by the outgoing Amaechi administration; that singular act negatively affected the Kalabari economy,” Mr Wike said.

“When we take over governance on May 29, the construction of the Trans-Kalabari link road will be given priority. I will dutifully revive the Kalabari economy, using this road as a stepping stone.”

He said if elected into office he would sand-fill the area and undertake the reclamation of land in the largely riverine area.

He promised to execute the shoreline protection project for Asari-Toru and rebuild the dilapidated General Hospital, Buguma.

He said that the Kalabari people will benefit from his administration as the deputy governor, Ipalibo Banigo, will pay a vital role for the growth of the state.

Speaking at the event, former Rivers PDP governorship aspirant, Ibinabo West, declared that the emergence of Mr. Wike will lead to a PDP victory in the state.

A Kalabari PDP leader, Sogboma Jackriss, stated that his group had agreed to work with Mr. Wike for the total victory of PDP.

In his remarks, Asari-Toru PDP chairman, Thom-Amachree, said Mr. Wike had led with integrity and earned the support of the people.

Mr. Wike and his running mate, Mrs. Banigo received a royal endorsement at the palace of Amayanabo of Kalabari, King TJT Princewill, Amachree XI.
